Benefits of Security Awareness Training
Beyond the goal of protecting your organization from cyber threats, security awareness training also has additional benefits:
Build a Security Minded Culture – Employee security awareness training helps to create a company culture that values secure practices. Training coupled with rewards and recognition is a must. This provides employees with the information and also the motivation needed to help keep the company safe.
Instill Best Practices – Employees usually have good intentions, but often don’t know the best security practices for certain situations. Training gives them standards and sets expectations for what they should do. For example, what to do when selecting strong passwords or preventing an unauthorized visitor from entering the office.
Avoid Costly Breaches and Down Time – Effective training keeps employees from making mistakes that take time and money to fix. Data breaches can result in costly fines, and also irreparable reputation damage and lost business. Also, any security issue has to be handled by IT resources whose time is expensive.
